Glad all is OK now.
I agree Mike. Since I full time I'm pretty well up on all of my systems since I use them 24/7/365. I had actually used the water system just before this trip so I know that it worked and all valves were correct. Somewhere in 250'ish miles it died. So once I determined the pump motor was working it was pretty obvious the pump mechanism had died. My plan is to get a rebuild kit for the old one and keep it for future use. I know that I won't always be where I can get a replacement so quickly.

Last time I checked (2012-ish) the rebuilt kits cost more than a new pump.

Tear your old pump apart first. Make sure the wobble plate mechanism isn't worn out or broken. IIRC the rebuild kits only included the rubber parts of the pump.

You might get lucky and find that a screw came loose.
